Binding Safety for Trans Folk - Abridged Version

Safety tips for chest binding for trans people here!  This is the shorter, easier to read version of my post here.  A lot of people were finding it hard to read.  If you’re up for more words, that version has a lot more details.

Binding badly can cause you permanent, life-threatening damage.  Like rush-you-to-the-hospital-in-an-ambulance, still-there-when-you’re-eighty damage.  It’s really, really important to bind safely.

Do nots:

  • Don’t bind with Ace bandages or duct tape
  • Don’t sleep while binding
  • Don’t do hard or long exercise while binding
  • Don’t bind for more than 8 hours a day
  • Don’t get a binder smaller than the seller recommends for your size
  • Don’t put on so many layers you get heat stroke
  • Don’t think that using a sports bra instead of a binder means you don’t have to follow these rules

Dos:

  • Give your chest time to rest any time you can, even just a few minutes of break helps
  • Loosen up your binding if you feel pain or have difficulty breathing
  • Cough hard every time you take your binding stuff off
  • Cough hard every so often while binding
  • Immediately take off your binding and cough if you start wheezing or your breath starts rattling
  • Stand up straight (actually important)
  • Every so often pull your shoulders back and breathe deeply
  • Carry around a more gentle sort of binding than you normally use to switch into if you have problems during the day

hi so i am new to watching rg and find it very hard to tell which routines are good and which are not aside from very obvious like dropping the apparatus. so what are some things to look for in routines to know which are "better" and which aren't? sorry if this doesn't make sense

thanks for the question! this is going to be long but here you go!

general

  • gymnast must use the whole carpet - any of yana’s routines have great travelling and she uses basically all of the carpet. when the routine looks kind of static is a no-no
  • expression - u cant be all smiley all the time, or mantain one face during a routine. your face must go to the music. margarita mamun is one of the great ones here.
  • left/right hand proportion. this is kind of difficult to see if you are not paying attention to it, but right handed gymnasts tend to use more their right hand and left handed gymnasts tend to use the left one. the proportion must be 50% each but when its obvious you can tell the difference. compare this routine of caroline webber (basically everything done with the right hand) and this routine of yana kudryavtseva (u can see shes right handed but does a lot of of things with her left hand including difficult one hand catches)
  • extension/amplitud. fake toe point and knee bends are legit penalized in rg compared to ag. catches must be done with extendend arms too.

pivots:

  • fixed position during the rotation. the free leg must not move, an example of this is when in attitude pivots (semenovas in ag) during the rotation, the free leg drops below the horizontal.
  • dropping heel or suspicious releve (see any routine of anastasiya serduykova and you will understand what i mean)  - unless its done flat (like penché turn or the same one in ring are the only ones which are done flat)
  • loosing axis - when gymnasts go to the side and like fall out of the pivot
  • pivots start counting when the position is fixed, not when they start. to compare to AG, a triple Y there is just a double Y in RG

balances

  • fixed position - not a milisecond, more like above 1.5-2 seconds is considered a great balance
  • lost of balance or axis - i spot this when the free leg doesnt return next to holding leg, they usually take a big step when its obvious

jumps

  • fixed and correct position in the air - like basically at the top of the jump the position must be done correctly and not when they are going to the top or going down. if you search any of marina duranda routines, she does a 3 jump combo, when the jump is at its highest the front leg is going down
  • air time, there are some jumps that are really low. i would say yana kudryavtseva has de lowest jumps of the top group, main reason why she only does stags instead of splits. mvp of jumps is viktoria mazur (cries a river bc she didnt qualified) if you watch any of her routines you can see that its almost like she maintains the top of the jump for a while

*imo jumps are the less deducted body difficulties

DER - when gymnasts throws the apparatus and does rotations under and/or durig catch (also during throw)

  • high throws - not everybody throws the apparatus high, pivot queen sabina ashirbayeva is good example of low throws
  • direction, if the gymnasts throws the apparatus one way  then the rotation of must be in that direction. the exception is when they catch, they can do it the opposite way. see it as you need to do it in a line, no sideways movements
  • short/long throws- u can tell when they throw too short bc the DER is like static and/or catch with bent arms. long when they have to run to catch the apparatus or when the elements  done under the throws are too “long”, almost loosing their shape to enlarge the distance in order to catch the apparatus
  • the rotations must be fluide, with no pauses between the rotations, or the rotations after the pause dont count.
  • THE BALL MUST BE CATCH WITH ONE HAND. unless they catch it without hands. the only time when catching the ball with 2 hands isnt a deduction, is when they catch it out of sight. bwd walkovers or behind the head are common, also common when they catch behind the head the throw is either too short or too long that they end up catching the ball with 2 hands in sight so thats a common deduction.
  • if you dont catch the apparatus, the DER is crossed out. so you lose execution points for the drop (and whatever they need to do to continue the routine) AND difficulty points - VERY COSTLY

there are other more sutil deductions but these are the ones I find easier to spot when you are starting to watch RG.

PS: also expect that any russian routines are going to be at least 0.5 ahead… there are a lot of small built-in deductions that the others do so that isnt weird. most ppl think that the judges are biased for russians (they are but not to the extent some ppl think), but really is more like son yeon-jae is the most overscored gymnast of the quad, there’s nothing to back up her scores in the code, the one thing that explain her scores is that she’s under irina viner’s wing.

In a perfect world we’d get Bravely Third and in the end everyone would be happy and have families and everything would be okay… But this is the real world so we should only expect them breaking our hearts even more, so I figured I’d give a shot at drawing some cute families to help accept our terrible fate ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

2016 Update: The Bravely Babies are an ongoing project that I talk about a lot!! If you want to know more, you can read the original bios here or go through the tag I set aside for them here! Be wary of spoilers for both games though!!
